Joshua Light Show with Live Musical Performances by Lesley Flanigan, Miho Hitori’s New Optimism and Noveller

In 1968, influential concert promoter Bill Graham paired the Joshua Light Show with The Broad’s special exhibition artist Yayoi Kusama to collaborate on four performances at the Fillmore East in New York, where crowds enthusiastically observed Kusama and her performers engage in self-obliteration.

For three evenings in November 2017, The Broad invites visitors to step away from contemporary selfie culture to experience an immersive environment of light and sound in the spirit of Kusama’s self-obliteration performances.

Joshua Light Show will collaborate with musicians Lesley Flanigan, Miho Hatori’s New Optimism and Noveller to transform The Broad’s Oculus Hall into a perpetually evolving kaleidoscope of brilliant color, light and sound.

The musical performances are guest-curated by Brandon Stosuy.

Tickets include timed admission entry into the Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors special exhibition, and are available at thebroad.org/programs.
